Why Employee Wellness Financial Incentives Backfire and What to Do Instead — A New Guideline by Health Enhancement Systems
Date:7/27/2013

rewards. Personal and group milestones should be rewarded and celebrated along the way — not with cash but with a tangible, visible reminder of the accomplishment and the bigger reward to come. It’s built-in reinforcement for the goal and provides a pull for those who could fall off along the way.
  • Regular communication on progress. Personal as well as group feedback is vital to maintain the sense of belonging to a program, not just going it alone. Each piece should include comments from organization leadership to reinforce the initiative’s importance.
  • Hoopla. Recognition, celebration, a pat on the back are things that almost can’t be overdone. Everyone feels good about being acknowledged for their efforts.
  • “There are many ways to acknowledge employee wellness accomplishments without using money,” adds Witherspoon. “Our experience in this field shows that these types of rewards have a better chance of instilling in participants a sense of self-belief and intrinsic motivation.”
